Three Highlands High School instrumentalists auditioned and earned positions in the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA) District 1 East/West Honors Band.



Evan Misejka, junior – Trumpet

Abi Welling, senior – Flute

Joshua Beck, junior – Alto Saxophone


The three were selected for the highly competitive ensemble among high school students who auditioned from across Allegheny County.


This year's PMEA festival will be co-hosted by directors at North Hills and Bethel Park school districts.  The event will take place in November, with the concert at North Hills Middle School on November 24.


“This festival marks the first of several honors music ensembles available to our students each year. We are excited that Highlands will again be so well represented by our talented musicians,” said Highlands High School band director Mr. Matthew Beresik.
